Israel's Declared 'Jewish-State' And Bible Prophecy: Isa. 28:16 - It Is In Haste, Has No Corner Stone, Will Not Stand

Big news: Israel self-declares 'Jewish Nation-State' w/Jerusalem their "eternal capital" etc.. Bible prophecy types everywhere getting worked up chanting 'Israel back in the land, the nation restored after 2000 yrs. etc.', Israel's glory days have come, etc., all based on prevalent Judaized mis-interpretations of scripture relating to Israel and eschatology - all of which cannot be dealt with here for it is too much - but a basic understanding can be had which is plainly that the common interpretation of Israel's glory days having now returned is exactly the opposite of the reality. The reality is that Israel is setting itself up to go into the darkest days of her entire history. Israel in unbelief, which is the case, back in the land - and don't miss that part about 'Israel in unbelief' - may declare itself anything they want to, but the only thing that matters is "what saith the LORD"*. The answer to that question - what God the LORD has already declared long ago - is the topic of this post. On that see below under two news items which first give the story. First then those two news items:
Israel Declares Itself 'Jewish State,' Jerusalem as Eternal Capital

JERUSALEM — Israel's parliament approved a controversial piece of legislation on Thursday that defines the country as the nation-state of the Jewish people but which critics warn sidelines minorities.

Benjamin Netanyahu called its passage "a defining moment in the annals of Zionism and the history of the state of Israel,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told the Knesset.

The legislation also addresses Jerusalem's status, declaring that " Jerusalem, complete and united, is the capital of Israel."


The dramatic specifics:

[source] The new Jewish Nation-State Basic Law makes official that:

  • The land of Israel belongs to the Jewish people only (as God's covenant to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob stipulates); from 1948 to 2018 it was the land of both Jews and Arabs
  • The Israelites' ancient language, Hebrew, is now the official language of the land
  • The biblical calendar is now the official calendar of Israel
  • Keeping the biblical Sabbath is now a nationwide requirement
  • The biblical festivals and holidays are now officially recognized by the state and must be kept nationwide
  • The Israeli government must work to complete ingathering the exiles—a prophetic term pertaining to the end of the age when the dispersed Israelites would return to the land; furthermore, the law makes official Israel's connection to the Diaspora
  • Jerusalem is the undivided capital of Israel
  • Jewish settlement of the Holy Land is now a "national value" and will be officially encouraged by the government—further bringing Israel back on track for God's prophetic program of the Israelites possessing the land
  • The state shall act in official capacity to preserve the Jewish religion around the world
  • The Star of David is the official flag [link], the Second Temple's Menorah is the official state symbol, and Hatikvah, a poem which formalizes the Israelites' prophetic desire to return to Zion, is the official national anthem
  • Interestingly, it seems that the bill changes the official name of Israel from the "State of Israel" to just "Israel"

[Excerpted/edited from a post of some time back - Zionism and bible prophecy:]

*What saith the Lord God about this newly declared 'Jewish Nation-State of Israel'?

Isaiah 28:16 "Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste"

The would-be world conquering Jewish Zionists are growing ever more restless to remove all hindrances to finally achieving their misconstrued ancient goal of setting a king on a throne in the city of Jerusalem from which to reign as lords over the lower classes of humanity and rule the planet with an iron fist.

July 19, 2018 Israel making history by legislating itself a Jewish-only Nation-State has now been declared by Zionist Israel as a major accomplishment in the attainment of this desired goal, calling this event "a defining moment in the annals of Zionism".

No doubt that is true, but make no mistake removing all hindrances to attaining the far greater goal of worldwide dominion is to be the ultimate "defining moment in the annals of Zionism". There is truly no lesser goal. The ultimate "defining moment" when this now declared 'Nation-State of Israel', according to plan, takes earth-wide dominion, and establishes the would-be "kingdom of Zion" over the entire planet - only then will the grandiose scheme of the Jewish-Zionists, to their minds, actually be fully completed.

But there is a huge problem with this Jewish-Zionist plan in it's current outworking:

Problem is that this 'kingdom-come' now setting itself up to achieve earth-wide dominion has been pieced together without a "sure foundation". It has been constructed on a faulty foundation. The foundation is faulty because the proper "corner stone" is missing, having been rejected by the builders, the Jews, some 2000 yrs. ago. Without this stone, the 'building' can never stand. see: The Stone which the builders rejected; from Daniel ch. 2

The Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ is of course this "stone". He alone is the "tried stone" [Acts 3:18], who, being tried, was proven to be the "precious corner stone" [1Peter 2:4]; that very "stone which the builders rejected" [Matt. 21:42 (Ps. 118:22-23); Luke 20:17].

Until the Lord GOD Almighty Himself lays this "corner stone" in Zion; a reference to the physical return of the Lord Jesus Christ to rightfully rule and reign upon the earth [Rev. 19:15], which will not happen until the very serious issue of the rejection and the crucifixion of the Son of God has been settled [Matt. 27:22,25]; any other attempt to establish 'Zion' (city of God) will be "in haste". (Acts 2:36; 4:11)

And that very serious issue of the rejection and crucifixion of the Son of God, the Lord Jesus Christ, absolutely can not be settled apart from justice by way of judgment [Isa. 1:27] - the period of time known in the Word of God as
The Tribulation. As it is written, and we believe, only after the Jews are brought by that horrible time of tribulation to an admission of guilt leading to true repentance [Hosea 5:15; Matt. 23:37-39; Zech. 12:10] can they be restored in right relationship to God, who will then himself usher in the true 'Kingdom of Zion'.

Isaiah the prophet, speaking for the Lord GOD said..."he that believeth shall not make haste", meaning that true believers will wait patiently until the Lord God Himself lays the one and only "precious corner stone" for the building of this true Zion [Ps. 2:6,10; 102:16]. Again, this is a reference to the return of the Lord Jesus Christ to build the Kingdom himself "without hands" [Dan. 2:44-45]; that is, nothing of men. Without this 'corner stone', whatever is now built or being built will be out of plumb and out of square, which is to say that it will be hopelessly crooked [Micah 3:10].

The events transpiring in the world today to build a Jewish-controlled one world government are "in haste". There will be one that will come though, and will seek to establish himself on the throne of the 'hasty Zion' the Jews are trumpeting here, but that one will prove to be an impostor, an 'untried stone', a faulty foundation.

This false messiah, this Jewish impostor who takes that throne, will be a king though...a king of fierce countenance...proving himself to not be the precious cornerstone, but the biblical 'Anti'-christ (Dan. 8:23-25). This is the teaching of scripture.  see:
Zionism and the coming Jewish-King Antichrist

Do not get ahead of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ...be not hasty! (Luke 2:34)

nice discernment!
check out psalm 118.
could it be jr church was on to something?


tom m. said...

Never read that book but my understanding is that it has not panned out at all as JR Church in his 1986 book 'prophesied' it would according to the 'secret code' he claimed was in the numbering of the Psalms... Psalms being the 19th book of the OT so that means the Psalms must correspond to the 1900's...said JRC ...with Psalm 1 = 1901, Psalm 2 = 1902, etc. on to the present day Psalm 118 = 2018, and still going

Secret codes supposedly hidden in scripture smack of kabbalism, and judaizing, i.e. shoe-horning interpretations to make-it-fit the judaized narrative...

Anyway for these reasons have to recommend dismissing JR Church's Psalm numbers= years secret code book...

Yes, one does have to take a grain of salt with JR Church.....but you have to admit, Psalm 118 is right on with your topic with the nation of Israel in unbelief today.
Although the nation is setting itself up for great calamity, the God of Israel will use it for good, which will usher in the second advent of Israel's Anointed one.

As far as codes and mysteries, the Bible is full of them. The Church is still a mystery for many who belong to churches! May they find the narrow gate!

well, anyway, keep up the good work!

Have to remark - "second advent of Israel's Anointed One" - that sounds very Hebrew Roots-ish

Very important i believe to proclaim clearly the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ by name - as we find in the scripture:

Phil. 3:20 For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ

For he is the not the Saviour of Israel only but of all the world:

1 John 4:14 'And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world'

Jesus Christ the name above every name - Phil. 2:9

Anyway not trying to be contentious here but the 'real name' issue is the focus of such great attack, and is of so great importance, no ground should ever be given

Matt. 10:32

There is no other way to look at Jesus but as a Hebrew from the tribe of Judah and he will forever be a "Jew".
He was even a Rabbi! And yes, Saviour of the world. He is the fulfilment of the Davidic Covenant (yet future to sit on David's throne) and many other promises God gave to the Hebrew nation....

Since early Christianity, Christians have commonly referred to Jesus as "Jesus Christ". ... It derives from the Greek Χριστός (Christos), a translation of the Hebrew mashiakh (משיח) meaning "anointed", and is usually transliterated into English as "Messiah".

re: "transliterated into English as "Messiah""

The Word of God instructs us that the correct designation for the Lord Jesus is not "Messias" but "Christ":

John 1:40-41 'One of the two which heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother. He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ'

...in the above instance as instructed by a Jew - Andrew the brother of Peter.

Paul the apostle - who identified himself as "an Hebrew of the Hebrews, who also was a Pharisee [Phil. 3:5,7] - not once ever referred to Christ Jesus as "messiah". Not once e.g. 1Cor. 1:1-4

mashiakh, messiah, etc. these terms are used for the purpose of judaizing

Andrew and Paul were anti-judaizers - the NT church is new wine in new bottles [Mark 2:22]
